be that we keep america the best place to create capital and credit. you know, in america one of our unique strengths is if you've got a good idea and you're willing to create risks and create job, you can usually get capital and credit to help you do that. now, the bill that's presently before us would, in my opinion, destabilize the credit markets to some degree because it would cause a contraction in credit as a result of the excessive approach it takes and how it tries to regulate the counterproductive approach as it tries to regulate what's called derivatives. we need stronger derivatives regulation, and i've got a proposal to do that, but the proposal in the bill that we're considering basically creates -- actually, in my opinion, it will unbalance the situation and create a weaker regulatory environment and probably harm our credit markets. jon: the republicans essentially blocked the bill on three successive occasions and then relented. why? >> well, because we wanted to be at the table and negotiate how the bill could be improved, and we did. we were, as a result of saying we weren
